Unlike the other grants above, which have specific pedagogical goals, these grants aim to enhance research and creative collaboration among faculty. Grants provide up to $2500 to support collaborate research and creative work, either among Knox faculty or among Knox faculty and other researchers, scholars, or artists in the region. Funding will help defray travel and other research costs, as well as dissemination of findings.

Requests for these grants do not have a specific form. Applications should be filed through the usual online form for Funds for Faculty Research and Creative Work. Please indicate that you are engaging in a collaborative project and provide details about the nature of the collaboration. Include specific budget details for possible use of these funds.
